My Searcy ancestors arrived in VA in the 1720s and moved to NC,TN,TX,OK and SK. I am also researching the family of John Lambert Neill and Sallie Clay Martin of Bedford Co. TN, the parents of my ggrandmother Sallie Clay Neill who married Dr.James Searcy in 1836/37. My grandfather married Mary Alleen Chilcoat in Bedford Co. TN in 1885. My Chilcoat ancestors moved from Al to TN and then after the civil war to TX and OK.Within these lines there are four veterans of the Revolutionary War, two veterans of the War of 1812 and seven veterans of the Confederate States Army. I would welcome correspondence from anyone concerning these families and will readily share information.
